You can connect to OroCloud environment using the SSH console. This can be established only via VPN connection using OpenVPN protocol.
You need to request SSH access to OroCloud environment via the customer support portal. The request should include:
- First and last name(s) of the user(s), and their Organization(s)
- E-mail addresses of the user(s)
Customer users need to have the following clients installed:
- VPN client supporting OpenVPN protocol. See the Connect to VPN topic for the list of suitable VPN clients.
- SSH client
Once customer request for SSH connection fulfilled users receives an email with OpenVPN configuration and key. Having this email user must perform the steps outlined in the sections below:
Reset your password and add an SSH key using Oro Identity Portal
Open Oro Identity Portal and click Forgot Password.
Enter your email in the password recovery dialog.
Check your mailbox for a message from the ORO Inc IDP Portal (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The message contains the following text:
Someone has just requested to change the credentials for your OroCloud account. If this was you, please click on the link below to reset them.
This link will expire in 5 minutes.
If you did not mean to reset your credentials, safely ignore this message. No changes will be applied.
Follow the link and set your new password.
Enter your personal SSH public key into Oro Identity Portal replacing the stub value created by the portal upon account generation.
